Subject: DDE from Lotus
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII
Hi! I have some data residing in a lotus worksheet. I would like to
read this data into a temporary SAS data set for further analysis
using the DDE function. I have the file lotus application running and
the lotus file open (vend999.wk4 or vend999.123). In the lotus file I
also created a range name "values". This range name values is the
table I would like to read into the data set vend999.
When I ran the program it said that the filename does not exist even
when I have the file open (I believe this is required). I also
printed a portion of the log below.
Also, is there a specific DDE function for lotus release 4 or 5 (wk4)
and another DDE function for lotus 97 (123)?
Please help and respond to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
